Goalkeepers are a very important part of the team, as they are the last line of defence between the goal and the ball. Just ask Manchester United how much of a difference having David de Gea in the team and how many times he has saved them from conceding a goal.
Here are the top five goalkeepers in terms of clean sheets in the top five leagues in Europe so far.
5. Samir Handanovic (Inter Milan)
Handanovic has conceded only 24 goals so far, helping his team stay in the top four and qualify for next season’s Champions League again.
4. Peter Gulacsi (RB Leipzig)
Peter Gulacsi plays for RB Leipzig in the German Bundesliga and has 13 clean sheets in 26 league games. Leipzig are currently placed third in the Bundesliga, well behind the title contenders Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund.
He has conceded only 20 goals so far, and has been key to making sure they stay ahead of rivals Borussia Mochengladbach and Eintracht Frankfurt and return to the Champions League next season.
3. Ederson (Manchester City)
Ederson plays for Manchester City in the English Premier League and has 14 clean sheets in 30 league games. City are currently placed second in the league table, but have played one less game than leaders Liverpool.
Ederson will play a crucial role in the next few games if the team are to successfully defend their league title for the first time in their history.
2. Jan Oblak (Atletico Madrid)
Jan Oblak plays for Atletico Madrid in the Spanish La Liga and has 15 clean sheets in 28 league games. Atletico Madrid are ahead of Real Madrid in the league standings and would like to keep it that way, despite the return of Zinedine Zidane as manager of their city rivals.
Oblak will have to put in some good performances if they are to maintain their two point lead over Real.
1. Alisson Becker (Liverpool)
Alisson Becker plays for Liverpool in the English Premier League and has 17 clean sheets in 31 games. Liverpool are currently top of the table but are only two points ahead of Manchester City having played one more game than their rivals.
Alisson was key for Liverpool taking a seven point lead at one point of the season, and the team will need him back to his best if they are win their first league title in nearly three decades.
